scheduled the next big meeting with congressional leaders for sunday, just three days from now, scott. >> pelley: nancy, even if a deal is reached, it would take a couple of weeks to get a bill through the legislative process. are they already getting close to missing this deadline? >> reporter: oh, they absolutely are, scott. and that's why i think the understanding here on capitol hill is that if they can't come up with a deal in the next week or so, they're going to have to start crafting a short-term measure to avert a debt crisis for a couple of days or weeks as they continue to negotiate. it's a tactic that they used a few months ago when they were trying to avoid a government shutdown. >> pelley: and, chip, at the white house, is the white house insisting on cuts in social security? >> reporter: no, they are not, scott? the white house says social security is on the table for discussion simply because everything has to be on the table for discussion, but they are not pushing hard for cuts in social security as part of this deal. >> pelley: thank you both very much. you know, th

one last plea for a grand bargain. >> we have a unique opportunity to do something big. we have a chance to stabilize america's finances for a decade. >> reporter: if the republicans continue to refuse to compromise on taxes, the president said voters will remember in next year's elections. >> i think what the american people are paying attention to is who seems to be trying to get something done? and who seems to be just posturing and trying to score political points? >> reporter: the president said he's willing to put everything on the table, including democratic sacred cows like social security and medicare, even raising the possibility of higher medicare premiums for upper-income seniors. in return, he called on republicans to agree to tax hikes on corporations and wealthy americans as part of a deal to cut deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade. republican speaker john boehner says there is no chance of that. >> there can be no tax hikes because tax hikes destroy jobs. >> reporter: boehner blamed the president for the impasse. >> we ask the president to lead, we ask h

prefers a big package, we all do. and i hope that there will be some kind of breakthrough tomorrow. >> reporter: scott, the president said today if they don't get a deal in the next couple of weeks, interest rates could soar, the nation's credit could be downgraded, and the economy could spiral into a second recession, or worse. >> pelley: chip, thank you. by far, the most awe inspiring pictures we've seen this week came from phoenix, arizona, where a cloud of dust seemed to swallow up the entire city last evening. flights were grounded, drivers couldn't see more than a few feet in front of their cars. folks who live in phoenix are calling it the mother of all dust storms. we've been hit by a lot of violent weather this year, and we asked ben tracy to look into why. >> reporter: this is a legitimate haboob, or dust storm. >> reporter: the giant wall of dust that swept into phoenix was bigger than most, a mile high and packing at least 60 mile per hour winds. >> we thought it was a cloud. then we got into it and it was just black. >> reporter: the dust began to gather near tucson wh

and if they agree to a big $4 trillion deal large enough that they would be able to agree to those tax increases. the problem for the white house is the clock is ticking and time's running out. >> pelley: nancy, is there anything on the books in terms of meetings with the president and the house and senate leadership? >> there's nothing right now, scott. in fact, all you hear is a lot of heat going back and forth. the president saying congress needs to get to work, republicans saying we're workinging, if you want to meet with us, come on down to capitol hill and meet with us. the senate has canceled its entire fourth of july recess, they were supposed to be gone all this week. instead they're going to be here starting tomorrow but it's very unclear what they're going to be doing because the president doesn't actually have any meetings scheduled with the top republican negotiators. >> pelley: of course, on this july 4 it's a day for parades and we saw a lot of presidential candidates in parades today. there was mitt romney in new hampshire. we saw michele bachmann in iowa. and i wonder, john, if
